Aladdin is a poor street urchin who spends his time stealing food from the marketplace in the city of Agrabah. His adventures begin when he meets a young girl who happens to be Princess Jasmine, who is forced to be married by her wacky yet estranged father. Aladdin's luck suddenly changes when he retrieves a magical lamp from the Cave of Wonders. What he unwittingly gets is a fun-loving genie who only wishes to have his freedom. Little do they know is that the Sultan's sinister advisor Jafar has his own plans for both Aladdin and the lamp.Written by
In the earliest scripts, there were two genies, one occupying the lamp, and one a ring, and Genie himself could grant an infinite number of wishes. In the first draft, Aladdin had three friends (Babkak, Omar, and Kassim), a magic ring and two genies. In the spin-off series Aladdin (1994), Omar was the name of one of the merchants. In Aladdin and the King of Thieves (1996), Cassim's name was used for the King of Thieves. The stage musical added Omar, Babkak and Kassim to replace Abu as Aladdin's sidekicks. See more »
In the Market Place, the Rug Vendor's stand is next to and to the left of the Apple Vendor's stand, ( Where Jasmine is accused of stealing). The rug stand goes through multiple changes. First as Jasmine walks past the Rug Vendor's stand, it has a large window with open shutters on the wall behind it, in the center under the canopy, with no rugs hanging up. Then as she is told by the Apple Vendor, " You better be able to pay for that", the Rug Vendor's stand to the left has nothing on the wall behind it at all. As Aladdin and Jasmine are leaving the scene, Jasmine says to the camel, " Why, Hello Doctor" and the Rug vendor's stand has rugs hanging all over the entire wall. See more »
I can show you the world / Shining, shimmering, splendid / Tell me, Princess, now, when did / you last let your heart decide? / I can open your eyes / Take you wonder by wonder / over, sideways and under / on a magic carpet ride / A whole new world / A new fantastic point of view / No one to tell us no, or where to go / Or say we're only dreaming...
A whole new world / A dazzling place I never knew / But when I'm way up here, it's crystal clear / That now I'm in a whole new world with you!

Magic, adventures, laughs, love... This film has everything mixed, and the result is quite good! The film is about the classic tale of "Aladdin and the magic lamp", so the story is well known by everybody. Despite it is for children, the quality of the characters is very good, the story, though predictable and typical, results interesting and, which is more important, it males us to spend a good hour and a half. The songs (typical in Disney) never are boring, and are surprisingly well mixed with images. In addition, action scenes are well ended and most characters are very charismatic. Aladdin is sympathetic form the beginning and most secondary characters are simply perfect. The "acting" of the Genius is superb in his strangeness and absurd, and Yafar is well remembered as one of the "best" bad ones of the history of cinema. It exhales an immense aura of evilness hardly ever seen in a movie... To sum up, one of the best (maybe the best) Disney film made, which everything to have a nice afternoon with your children or just spending a nice time laughing and remembering when you were a child.
